Where to find the Ares armor set in God of War Ragnarok?
The Ares armor set will only appear in a God of War Ragnarok campaign in New Game Plus mode. After completing the campaign on any difficulty, a New Game Plus mode will be available. When you reach this point, you’ll have to work your way through the game until a shop appears where you can buy items.
You can always buy the Ares story armor set and they only cost Hacksilver for the base pieces. You need to buy three pieces of armor set: Cuirass of Areas, Gauntlets of Ares and the War Belt of Ares. These items appear at the beginning of your New Game Plus campaign.
The Ares armor set could be a set to use during your new God of War campaign. The chestplate has the passive called Rage of Ares, which gives you a lucky chance of dropping health stones while hitting enemies with your Rage attacks. In addition, health stones provide fury and stones trigger larger explosions. The Gauntlet of Ares and War Belt of Ares have the Enraged Might passive where if you activate Rage while the Rage Gauge is full, all damage is increased for a short time.
